Wow your pictures are very nice like the magazines. They are so crisp and sharp. May I ask how it is done? Smaller aperture for more depth of view + some post work?

Thanks

Photos are really nice, a couple aren't showing up though.


As for the car, I'm still not sure if I like it or not. There are vents and flaps everywhere. I like the back though. And those side mirrors, could they be any further away from the car? I'm pretty sure they are the widest point of the whole car.

Amazing how different tastes can be. In my view this is the best looking Ferrari ever, and this is how every F-car should look like. On the other hand 458 is in my view the most ugly F-car.

odd, my first thought on seeing the car in real life (from the front admittedly) was how it looked like a 458 on steroids, lol

I have heard of it, in proper English. Still doesn't mean it's a good looking car. I never said all the vents and flaps looked ugly, did I? Everyone has their own opinions, so no sense in arguing whether or not this car looks good. I'm just not sure if I like it just yet.

It does look like a 458 and an Enzo made a baby....

Weird, IMO, the 458i and LaFerrari (god I feel stupid saying that name) are from the family. But either way, far from the best looking Ferrari.

Personally I think the McLaren P1 looks better than this.

Side mirrors are the widest point of any car. Also, they have to be that far out becauseof the narrow midsection of the car. If it stuck out 6" they would only see a rear wheel arch and an air intake.

Name is the most stupid i have ever heard, that aside though, the car looks simply amazing. Not very ferrari like, but definately an awesome looker. Personally don't really like the reverse-T front spoiler thing, but that also makes it looks more cool, agressive, and futuristic. Overall, i think this is a job well done for ferrari >=] better looker than what lamborghini and Mclaren could offer for now. (love the MP4-12C, looks agressive and elegant at the same time, but thats not what the La Ferrari is about xD)

The F12 is the best looking Ferrari out today including this cyborg looking machine. In terms of the Laferrari direct competition.... the P1 takes the W and hot chick at the finish line.

Great shots!

I just can't wait to see this car in person. As with any photos, you always lose that level of detail that goes into these cars. When you see them in real life, it's just breathtaking the little details with the way things are shaped and the curves for aerodynamic efficiency.

That being said, these photos alone have given me a new dimension with the small details that I haven't seen in other photos. Thank you!

Look at the shape of the car. Let's try parking the thing with shorter mirrors. KOJ explained it right imo. It's still a streetcar after all.
